Harness Lake Campsite #5


Topography of under-water approach: Rocks.

Impediments to disembarking from and/or unloading a canoe: Very rocky. Hard to unload canoe. Might be easier in higher water level when you can pull up further, or lower water level when you have more rock surface to step on to.

Topography to tent sites: Small incline from landing to campsite.

General description: Nice campsite with average seating area/kitchen. Good exposure east and west for sunrise/sunset. Good area for stargazing. Not amazing for swimming. Lots of flat tent spots. Not an all-time favourite but would recommend. Plenty of lightning struck trees throughout island - might want to avoid during stormy weather

Overall accessibility: Hard to disembark, but otherwise no issues.
